The first picture is the stereotypical Instagram picture of my walk this afternoon.
However, the second is reality.
I feel compelled to share I just survived JUMANJI!
If I may paint a mental image for you of my "peaceful, self-reflecting, nature stroll" it essentially consisted of me in a dead sprint running from a swarm of mosquitoes swinging a stick in front of me as I go so I don't run into the GINORMOUS spider webs across the trail. Oh, and I definitely dodged a black snake at one point too.
There was also lots of spastic jumping and squealing while swinging my stick like a sword if I felt anything touch me.
I seriously hope that place does not have trail cameras 🤦♀️ I can usually hang with the creatures of nature, but dang, they were in rare form today.
I now have so many bug bites I look like I have chicken pox... 3 of which are directly under my left eye 🤣
